Rabbi Simcha Scholar - Fighting Illness with Love - (Ep. 33)
Published on Jun 26, 2020
Since 1987, Chai Lifeline’s mission has been to restore the light of childhood to children whose innocence ended when cancer, life-threatening, or lifelong illness was diagnosed.
Through free programs that address the emotional, social, and financial needs of seriously ill children, their families, and communities, Chai Lifeline restores normalcy to family life, and better enables families to withstand the crises and challenges of serious pediatric illness.
My guest today, Rabbi Simcha Scholar is the vice president of Chai Lifeline. I had the privilege of being a counselor and Division Head in Camp Simcha, which is a summer program that offers children with cancer and chronic illnesses a chance to enjoy the joys of overnight camp and to be a kid again. What they do is incredible!
They have supported and help children who are battling cancer and chronic illnesses and their families to not just here in the U.S., but across the world. They're helping thousands and thousands of children and families taking on the most challenging time of their life.
Today we talk about the genesis of Chai Lifeline, what it takes to be a fearless leader and how one can step up for their community.
